Story Overview:

From two different worlds… 

Now that she’s escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends—even if most of her friends don’t know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she’s just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger. 

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her… 

Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she’s not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he’s not letting her go. Unfortunately someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage. 

He’s not letting her go… 

Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn’t know why. When they’re thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.5

Ooh, there was a ton to love about the setup on this one, but my favorite was simply the dichotomy of the characters. Nix is half fae/half goddess of Chaos. Bo is half demon...and I can't remember his other half...maybe human? But regardless, the two of them together make for a really powerful partnership. 

Which is good because this story takes them on a non-stop action adventure that made for some really riveting story. I loved every second of reading this book.

And I loved where the series went with the introduction of several new intriguing characters that again...I really love. I cannot wait for more in this series.

And as always, Jeffrey Kafer does an incredible job of narration. I love both his male and female voices as well as the myriad of voices. My only complaint with this one was it was really obvious when corrections had been spliced into the audio as the sound quality had quite a bit of variation. 

But overall, it was another great installment to this paranormal series that I'm thoroughly enjoying. I also really like that the audiobooks are a little shorter than normal. It makes it where I can look at the series of 7 or 8 books and not be overwhelmed. And the stories aren't lacking at all even though they're a bit shorter than the norm.
